  10. Nan, Kelli and Todd. I don’t know of another person who God loved more than Mike. Mike was chosen to be with all of us. He was strength, he was a shining light. He was there especially for Theresa and Nan. He showed love to all of this family and we all gravitated to him. The memories will always remain and therefore he will always remain in our hearts and thoughts. Many hugs, Mary and Dale Hobbs

  11. I offer my prayers to the extended Turk family on their loss.

    As Christians in the time of loss,I try to remember the words of Saint Paul in first letter to the Thessalonians, Chapter 4 verses 13 to 18, regarding the Lord’s second coming and try to console ourselves with his words.

    I met Mike when we were both children in West University Place and had the privilege of reconnecting with him in the past several years.

    Mike served his country with honor and handled his illness with dignity.
